The Big Bang Theory Featuring Michelle Obama!

Sure the inauguration is a time to celebrate our freedom and democracy amongst a peaceful transition of power that unites our country, even if only for one day. And sure, we care about the President being sworn in and his speech in front of millions, but let’s be honest, it’s all about the bangs, the coat, and the dress! So let’s discuss…

First, the big bang:

I hate to say it, but my big bang theory is that Michelle Obama completely copied my look. Isn’t it a bit obvious? In my book, she’s like 3 years too late. As they say though, better late than never. I’m happy to have been an inspiration. Let’s just call it my patriotic duty. You’re welcome, Mrs. Obama. You’re welcome.

Pretty in Pink For Less!

What woman can’t resist the color pink?! I know some people find it to be a little too girly or immature, but I think it’s the perfect way to show off your feminine side.

For those pink lovers out there try this deep pink top or these light pink jeans. The peplum top is perfect for a winter night out with a sweater worn over top. I also love pink jeans because they are a great alternative to regular jeans and can add some spice to your look.

If you’re not so keen on pink yet, try wearing it in your accessories. Maybe go for these pink heels from Lulu’s. They are a great height and would look extremely cute with a black and white polka dotted dress for a so-called girly look. Also try this pink clutch from Nasty Gal or these crystal drop earrings from Bauble Bar.

Finally, this adorable dress from ModCloth is a great mix of pink and neutral. The Color blocking is perfection and this dress could so easily be worn to multiple occasions.

Pink Heels: $28; ModCloth Peplum Top: $35; Pink Jeans: Macy’s: $50.00; ModCloth Dress: $70.00; Clutch from Nasty Gal: $20.00; Earrings: Bauble Bar: $24

Snow Gear Essentials for Less

The snow has finally come to Cincinnati… barely. And a day late of Christmas I might add. But I’ll take something over nothing, and I’m banking that there’s a lot more to come. And while I love looking at the snow from the comfort of my house wrapped in a bundle of blankets, I don’t enjoy venturing out into the cold as much.

It’s important to have the essential snow gear items handy when it comes time to pack on the layers and stay warm. Some of my essentials include a pair of warm gloves that still allow me to function and text. These gloves from Urban Outfitters look and feel warm, and still allow your fingers to function with your phone.
